Kids Plus Families – lived experiences of disability
Kylie Barsby, Willeke and Jacob Walsh, Noah
There will be various presentations from Family members, and Young people from Kids Plus with lived experience of disability. Presentations will include their perspectives as a recipient of services on:
- How have they and their attitudes changed over the years
- In what ways do service provides (and perhaps the community more broadly) need to change
We Speak PODD
One family will share their reflections using their journey of using Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)
In this presentation we explore the journey of Kylie’s son Lachie starting and excelling in his learning and use of AAC and specifically PODD communication system, along with the lived experiences of Noah.
Exploring how finding your support network professionally and socially will enhance the learning and adoption of PODD. Going through the stages of use from identifying the right program, to practice, integration and school readiness.
